I need to know how to connect to a telnet site in VB.

I will need to be able to see the output of it, and be able to manipulate, and also input info to the telnet server.... basiclly I'm making an enhansed telnet client just for a specific server.

I need to be able to insert the IP address and port number of it.

I use VB1 and VB5, so whichever one you use, you can tell me about (although I don't think VB1 has the capabilities)

Thanks!

If it requires a special file (like an OCX), please tell me where I can get it then.

Put a msWinsock control..(found in VB5) on a form with a large textbox(text1) and three small textboxes IPaddress(text2) port#(text3) Commands(text4). Two command buttons:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Winsock1.Connect Text2.Text, Text3.Text
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
    Winsock1.SendData Text4.Text
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

End Sub

Private Sub Winsock1_DataArrival(ByVal bytesTotal As Long)
Dim buffer As String
Winsock1.GetData buffer, vbString
Text1.Text = buffer
End Sub
